FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I create Building Passports for my clients?
In the event that you have clients who are building owners / dutyholders, you can create a Building Passport for them. The 'Get a Building Passport' process includes a section to identify yourself and your client.
Do I need to create an account to create a Building Passport?
Yes. Because we keep a historic record of every building we need to know who has uploaded information and where that information comes from.
Can I create an account on behalf of someone else?
You can kick off the process of creating an account for another person / organisation, however they will need to complete the process themselves.
Who owns a Building Passport?
The ultimate ownership of a Building Passport sits with the party at the top of the hierarchy of ownership. For example, if there is no Freeholder inputted, the Building Passport will belong to the Virtual Freeholder or the Long Leaseholder.
Can one building have more than one Building Passport?
No. Our Building Passports transcend ownership timescales and therefore once a building has a Building Passport, it will always have one. We file our Building Passports by UPRN (Unique Property Reference Number) and our system ensures that no dupliactes can exist.
What happens when a building is bought / sold?
The ownership of the Building Passport will always lie with the building owner. As such, when a building is sold, the new owner requests that the Building Passport is transferred to their ownership. The new owner will then therefore have access to the entire history of that asset.
Can I enable prospective purchasers access to the Building Passport?
Yes. You can give temporary read-only access to prospective purchasers, and be notified when they have accessed the Passport.
What if I no longer want a Building Passport for my building?
Once created, a Building Passport will be permanently and securely stored on our system. You can however control access to who can see this information.
